Frederick James Dykes was a Fellow of the College for fifty-one years, Lecturer for twenty-seven years, and Tutor for fourteen years; and he repeatedly served as Proctor.  Knowledgeable in mechanical theory and practice, an affable and eager man, intolerant of flummery, he was popular amongst colleagues and students alike.  Energetic to the last, he died in 1957 at the age of seventy-six.
